Reclaim Your Rise: Type 1 Diabetes with Lauren Bongiorno
Calming Fears Around T1D Pregnancy with Jess Bonilla Part 1
Show Notes

This week, I'm excited to have Jess Bonilla back on the show to share her pregnancy journey with us. Jess is a Nationally Certified Health Coach and the Director of Coaching at Risely. She was the very first co-host on the pod (listen to episode 2 if you haven't already). 

You may have heard that T1D makes pregnancy high-risk or have felt fearful of being pregnant with diabetes. If you are thinking about motherhood in the near future and want to hear more about Jess's pregnancy journey with diabetes, you will want to listen to this one. 

In this episode, Jess talks about… 

  • Her exploration of having a hospital birth versus a home birth 
  • Insulin changes that she experienced throughout her three trimesters and how she navigated anxiety with high blood sugars
  • Her life-changing tip for those on a pump 
  • And so much more!
